Press Release: Going ahead the 1st-3rd September at London Olympia, The Ledge is the UK’s only Action Sports and Lifestyle trade show. Packing the gangways with an extensive portfolio of brands from the action sports, street and skate industry, this show continues to provide an essential platform for these sectors to come together under one roof.
The Ledge never fails to attract the biggest brands and buyers in action sports and as an added bonus this years show will also host the UK Mini Ramp Champ Series.
Since its infancy, the mini ramp has been a highlight of the trade show and the new format will no doubt once again draw in a big crowd.
This open event will be made up of two categories – under 16 and over 16 both battling it out for the purse and a selection of prizes. Taking place on the Sunday, practice from 10am – 12pm with the competitions kicking off at 12.30pm. 2 runs, best run counts.
Monday sees the pros and sponsored riders go head to head followed by best trick.
If this isn’t enough action entertainment, the top UK freestyle skateboarders have combined with the freestyle skating site LateTricks.com to put together an exclusive series of demos at this years Ledge Show. Focussed on precision, creativity and technical difficulty, freestyle skateboarding inspires a truly unique perspective on the sport, with freestylers across the country continuing to innovate and push boundaries to new heights.
With a demo team comprised of the highest ranking UK amateur and professional freestylers, the LateTricks freestyle demos will share the continued development of the sport with the Ledge Show visitors and let them know that freestyle in the UK is back!
